A new fully charged 9-Volt battery commonly lasts for weeks of daily use.

Indications of a low 9-volt battery voltage are inconsistent detection or flashing laser.

Always Use A New 9-Volt Battery. A fresh fully charged battery provides the most detection strength and uses time. A partially charged battery can cause false readings, less detection depth, and inconsistent laser.

A fresh, fully charged 9-volt battery provides more than ample use time.

A low battery can cost you blades, material, and lost time......

Inventors Bio

I'm Billy Carmen inventor of the Little Wizard Woodworking Metal Detector and founder of Wizard Industries. I created the Little Wizard in 1999 as a tool to help  woodworkers find buried metal located inside recycled wood. Commonly there are nails, screws, barbed wire, staples, bullets and other buried metals that can damage or destroy woodworking tools such as planer, router and saw blades. 

The Little Wizard caught on in the woodworking market as a needed tool right away and a few months later I developed the Lumber Wizard (a larger and stronger version of the Little Wizard. From 1999 over the course of the next three years  I went on to develop several other products that are now the driving force behind 4 brands of products under the Wizard name (WizardShopSpecsSecure Quick and Jolivete).

As our products and brands continued to grow from 1999 to 2001 I found several efficient, inexpensive and effective ways to get products into their marketplaces. In 2001 I began building a business methodology and suite of technologies that allowed other small brands to use the same product exposure and retailer penetration methods I used for my own produycts. In 2003 I discovered that my unique business methodology could be patented. In 2004 we filed fora U.S. patent for our business methodology and technology and in 2007 we were granted a U.S. patent (#7,249,064) for the way in which we do business.

During the course of building our own product lines from 2003 to today we have invited hundreds of companies to become a part of our product distribution so they too could experience the same type successes I experienced from the use of our unique business model. Today hundreds of companies have their products in our system and are using the business model to help move their products through our channels. 

So there ya have it! The short story of who I am. To see more about the unique system we've built and the amazing people that are as much a part of it as I see SmallBrandNation.com. To see more of the products I've created that are sold in retail stores around the planet see Wizind.com

Thank you for your interest in my story!
